Iris Cafe closed last month exactly one month after opening at 33 St. Mark's Place. At the time, a worker hauling out trash bags from the Taiwanese-style bakery said that they would be expanding their menu and reopening.
Meanwhile, signs have arrived announcing an outpost of CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice, a Taiwan-based business with 800 stores worldwide, including several in NYC.
Per the CoCo website:
"Driven by a passion to serve drinks of the highest quality and incomparable variety to the urbanites of our new age, the founders set out to create a brand that was to become a symbol of flavor, sophistication and delicacy."
This space was previously home to Rockit Scientist Records, which closed in the spring of 2012.
